I rarely venture past 1973, but I'm absolutely LOVING this show. I'm not sure how I stumbled onto it, but I'm sure it was a recommendation on this site or another (Reddit, maybe). It pays to dig around!
I've been trying to figure out why I like this show so much. I know I like the cragginess in Jerry's vocal (i.e., Ship of Fools), and it's just a terrific show overall.

Will Never Forget This
I remember getting my mail order back because the return envelope was damaged. Contacted GDTS and the nice lady on the phone said to send it back with a note explaining what happened. Shortly thereafter my tickets arrived...2nd row in front of Jerry! It was a pesty rain, but not a heavy rain. But once they did something never done before or after, opening the show with EYES, I knew we were in for something very special. And so it went. Truly memorable show for numerous reasons.

It was a very liquidy night, both from the sky and from the lot. Played slip n slide on that blue tarp and danced the night away when the boys came on. Jer was really on this night and when we got back to the lot, someone put the coolest "Dead/Feat" sticker on the back of the bug. All was well in our world until we had a NJ trooper stick his head into our window at the entrance to the NJ turnpike asking if we were ok to drive ! What a blast. I miss those days terribly, thanks archives

Best show I saw live
I saw the Dead 33 times between 1991 and 1995. This show was undoubtedly the finest one in every respect. The interplay between Jerry, Bobby, and Bruce is beyond powerful. I knew I was seeing something special at the time, and although I suspected that something I ingested may have biased me, when I subsequently heard the tapes I just couldn't believe that I had been lucky enough to be there.
The Dark Star teases (which incidentally they began the night before)are spectacular. Listen to the one preceding Masterpiece in Set 1 - the way Bobby begins it, followed by Phil, then Jerry, and then Bruce. The jam barely a minute and a half and it moves at a glacial pace. Yet you can feel the raw energy boiling under the surface waiting to explode.
Also check out the Dark Star(ish) jam from the night before between Black Peter and Throwing Stones. It's equally powerful.
The Dead enjoyed a renaissance between 1989 & 1991. But this show (and much of the previous night) were magic. 18 years later and these are my greatest concert memories.

Am I at Giants stadium?
Touring through the 80's and early 90's meant that you could count on where the boys would step up to the plate and where they they would dish out an average show. Giants stadium fell into the latter column until today. After cleaning up a bit in the late 80's (post coma) Jerry decided to slide back into his old ways, and the music in 1990-1991 exemplified that. Today was no exception. Coming out and opening with an outstanding Eyes and dabbling with Dark Star throughout the 1st & 2nd set was a treat we were not used to. Thanks guys for knocking one out of the park that day-it was unexpected and thorougly enjoyed.

Dark Star Teases
A few of the Dark Star teases are just space, they are NOT Dark Star. It also isn't fair to say this is the only Dark Star jam since '74, because in '74 they actually started the begining of the tune. Here they kind of noodle on it in places, but I think it is a stretch to call it a Dark Star jam. Plus they had been playing Dark Star a lot since '89, so why was it such a big deal to hear them kind of play it but never start the tune?

after seeing many brent shows in the eighties, this was my first night in the ninetees. took my buddy to his first show. what a night. never expected the eyes opener. I was jealous that it was not my first show. istening to it know brings back great memories.

One of Bob's best nights in the 90's..
This is a great example for people trying to figure out what Bob brings to the music, especially if you are just getting into the Dead. I have to admit I jumped the wall right before the Eyes opener but I don't regret it one bit. This was one of the top 3 shows I ever saw and people were dancing and trying to keep up with the pace of the band and some were falling down trying....lol. It was that kind of night. The Eyes opener was not just unexpected but it was a great extended version to. It could have been a short, sweet first set gift but its well jammed out and Bruce (who supposedly asked Garcia to open with it) is having the time of his life on this. Walkin Blues is punchy and Bob does a great job of coming in after that amazing opener. Brown Eyes Women is excellent especially because of Bob. He is working his butt off and very prominent in this mix. The BEW also kept up the energy and pace which Eyes established which is no small feat on this night. Bob kinda steals this version imo. The Dark Star teases are cool simply because this was rare for latter day Grateful Dead. Also, the DS theme throughout the show was really cool if you were there. Masterpiece confirms that this was one of Bob's best nights of the 90's imo. If you love Bob's work than put this show in and turn it up. He is very forward in the mix. Masterpiece has some great work by Bruce and Vince. Loose Lucy is likely the best I ever heard out of 100 shows. Jerry takes the ball from Bob and Bruce really helps Jerry light it up. Cassidy riped on this night and holds up here to what I remember. The exploratory part of Cassidy has Bob, again out in front, and really throwing it down. This show is great because of the way Bob and Jerry trade off licks seamlessly imo. Check them out during the exploratory part of this song. It just goes on and on. One of the best Cassidy's of all time if not the best imo. There is also the ever present noodling that went on this night after Cassidy ends. Lots of noodling by Jerry on this night. The band was just hot to play. Might As Well was great but Vince's voice is a little annoying for me because it comes off louder than Jerry's during the chorus. Bruce key work here is great and the tune is clearly jammed hard and better than the Deer Creek version on 6/6/91 which I also caught. Amazing enough, the Dead took the energy level UP for the second set. St. of Circumstance is without doubt the best I ever heard live or on tape. The stadium was comin off the chain during this. The only other SOC, in the 90's, that I think touches this one was from MSG 9/16/91. This is a lilting version of Ship of Fools with Bruce just adding awesome touches to it, especially in the first part of the tune. Bob also is very up front in the mix on this version. Thank God Healey did not turn Bob down on this night because we get some of the best work I ever heard Bob do imo. Jerry's solo soars here and his voice holds up pretty good. This SOF was really the first let up all night from the crazy energy that led up to it. There is a cut in this copy leading into the Dark Star jam. Dark Star was so close on this night, you could reach out and touch it but, alas, it was not to be. Still, I love the drums accompaniment to this tease. It's not a throw away tease and wasn't that night either. That's why people are into the teases. They complimented the songs. This tease led into a blazing Truckin, one of the best I ever heard live. Man, Giants stadium was lit up like a candle during this, Uncle John's Band, Playin reprise, and Sugar Mags like you read about. The Band was so tight on this Truckin that nobody stands out alone. The music was playing the band. China Doll was spectacular and likely the second best I ever heard live. It's a good rival for the other all-time favorite China Doll I caught from 9/25/91 Boston Garden. This one is a little disjointed while the one from 9/25/91 is a picture perfect version. Vince comes in here with some decent work. Sugar Mags blazed so hard that, ya, people were falling down around me trying to keep up....lol.
I don't know if its me but Phil is hard to pick up on this copy. Everyone else is pretty prominent but Phil seems to be the odd man out. Still, this is a top show from latter day Dead. Grab it!

Electric Rain Drops
Between the thunderstorms and the acid, the entire night was charged to the point of exploding. The humidity was so intense that we were crying for it to rain ...and it did! What a metaphysical orgasm. When the storm finally broke, the night opened up and the energy began to flow, from the sky, the stage and the crowd. My Sugar Magnolia and I were stompin in the water with grins from ear to ear. Definitely one of the best shows I've experienced.

Opening with Eyes and lots of fun after that. I was at the Monday night show in 89 and they did Playin but never finished. Here it was two years later at Giants Stadium at the Monday night show and they do the Playin reprise. Coincidence?

my first show..
i just found this site today! yay! :D
this show was my first show. i was fifteen years old and it blew me away. them opening with eyes of the world was perfect. it felt like an epiphany. plus them playing masterpiece and ship of fools was awesome since they are still two of my favorite songs. and hey.. at the time truckin was it. i even bought the 45 of truckin and talked the old man at the pool hall where i hung out in to letting me put it in the jukebox. ;)
this show is in my top two favorites. falling only to a JGB tape my late husband gave to me when i met him (romantic for a deadhead since it had 'how sweet it is' on it).. and i just found out they've released that on cd! titled 'after midnight' and 'way after midnight' that show included robert hunter singing. 2/28-29/80 and songs like.. dear prudence, masterpiece, russian lullaby, tiger rose and midnight moonlight.
woo! i've found all kinds of good stuff today. :D

My girlfriend called the Eyes opener..
Just reading the reviews brings tears to my eyes...I went to this show with my girlfriend and two other of our friends...We were on the field general admission in the middle of the swamp with the place filled to the brim. I turned to my girlfriend and asked her what they were gonna open with...She says "Eyes of the World." I laughed and told her how they NEVER open with Eyes....And then bam. Incredible. OK, now my face is covered in tears. I remember seeing a Spike Lee commercial he did for Levi's that was filmed at this show...Anyone remember that? And they did some special on PBS with the Saint of Circumstance from this show I think? The boys brought the extra grit and grind for this show...My memory now shifts to the 2nd night in summer 89' when between sets someone came on stage and announced there was a tornado watch and for everyone to get off the field or we were all gonna die. Does anyone remember that? For about 10 years, I thought I just, ugh, imagined it, but then a few years back someone said they heard that too. Crazy times, folks. Now I'm actually gonna listen to this sdbd. 5 stars just for how I remember it.

Dark Star EVERYWHERE!
I was at this one. This was an incredible show - the Dark Star theme was everywhere, starting in the first set, before "Masterpiece." The last first set "Eyes" since 1974, the first Dark Star Jam since 1975, and Dark Star woven everywhere throughout the show, even through the beginning of "Truckin." A very unique show, and well performed. "Eyes," "Miracle (from the previous night)," and "Saint" were broadcast on a TV program called "In Concert," which I taped. It also included a backstage interview with Garcia and Weir. Well worth the download. Check it out, y'all.
Come on jboy - tell us how many augmented 9th chords were played during this show.

All this Star Talk
I can't beleive all that is written negatively about Dark Star teases. Like this was the first time this band ever messed with people's heads by teasing a song.
How many times during space or a jam did you hear some rift and think you knew what song was coming next ? and then Wrong ! They messed with us some more and played something different.
How many times did I hear or see something that went "XXX number of days since the last Dark Star"
How long did they talk about Unbroken Chain before hearing one from the stage ?
As I remember it, that was part of the whole deal.
C'mon folks. How many times did they open with Eyes ? This is a darn good show and remember they were playing in the 90's after a rain storm at Giant Stadium. Real good show. Sorry if you went home disappointed.

I have to say that this show popped my cherry :) went to over 100 shows after this one, took off form school just to travel and was a blast...I have to say besides the sets that they played here, but those who were at the show and were on the floor should remember the slip an slide!!! To me the fact that it was a hot day in June out, and then it down poured on us, made the show so much more soulfull to me. Best show to me by far, close to the ones of course up at Rich Stadium, but everyone ransacked the 7'll before the show and the cops were beatin people down from horse back...that kinda sucked.... can't believe its been 10 years ago today that the man left this world for a better one....

WHAT A SHOW!!!
the first set of this show could possibly be the best and most energetic first set of the nineties. An "Eyes" opener, the fastest, tightest, and best version of "B.E. Women" ever played, along with one of the greatest versions of "Loose Lucy" and "Might as Well". The energy doesnt stop in the second set either. This show makes 6/14/91 look like a bad 95' show. Also, I thought I might add that 8/16/91 sucks. I know why it is popular..Dark Star in first set..big fucking deal. It sucked and so did the whole show on 8/16. One thing about this show though..why is everyone soooo concerned about the "Dark Star" teases. So what. A TEASE here in there doesn't make a show a classic. Stop being such lame "dark star darlings" and comment on the music that was actually PLAYED instead of a few brief teases.

I remember seeing this as well on tv. I had just graduated high school and was at a summer party. I remember seeing them play Eyes (which happens to be my fav). This is one of the better Eyes I've listened to in here. I had never been to a show but it looked like so much fun. I got on the bus soon after and was able to catch at least 12 shows; I think? Hey, does anyone have a Morning Dew T-Shirt that looks like the Mountain Dew soda can? I used to have one and wore it out or lost it along the way. I would love to have another:) 5 stars for it being the first kinda live show for me. Sound quality sounds great.

Sorry nyc oldie didn't hear the same show I did. I thought this show was the ultimate GD mindf**k for that period. Very few shows in this era were the Dead so many steps ahead of you. Throwing the Playin reprise in the mix on this one was pure out&out genius. UJB > DS jam is absolute GD heaven.

I had a second row seat for this show right in front of Jerry and Bruce. To see them play off eachother was remarkable. Bruce had a smile from ear to ear the whole show, and he just played off Jerry and Jerry played off Bruce, back and forth. I can remember rarely seeing Jerry turned towards the rest of the band, most of the show, he and Bruce were tunnel-visioned on eachother....I remember the Levi's commercial with "Joe" the roadcrew guy, and I remember that portions of this show were on "Friday night live" (I think that was the name of the show)...I think it was on NBC, and it aired right around July 4th weekend...Anybody have that TV footage...If so, please email me!!

Maybe the best show of the 90's. Certain reviewers say there no shows worth a 5 rating post Brent. I think they're nuts. This show kicks ass from start to finish. Eyes as the 1st opener? Not to mention that Bruce and Jerry just light the song up the whole time!! All the Dark Star treases throughtout the entire show are insane. The entire band is as tight as you can get this night. To say there are no 5 star shows after Brent is ridiculous!!!

Glad to find SBD at last.....
This was my Dad's first show, and the Boys made sure he came back. I figured it might be nice to take him to see a Show..."Dad, I don't go to football games, I don't go to soccer games, I go to THESE things!" We had nice floor seats in the center, just behind the board if I remember correctly. Eyes to open! Dark Star all over the place! Loose Lucy! Second set, he was standing on top of his seat with binoculars, absolutely transfixed watching the Navigator nail the Ship of Fools, I think that's what did it for him.....he was wearing the floor bracelet for two days at work. We went to at least one show a summer after that one, but that first one was the best. So glad to hear it SBD instead of my lousy worn AUD.

About 8 of my fraternity brothers and I tailgated allday and were rollerblading (this was when they first came out) around the parking lot fully dosed up zig-zagging in and out of people and came across some guy selling 'squiddly-diddly ice cream' we never did figure out what was in it but he looked really crazy and people were lined up for it.
Great great great show and alot of fun we ate way too much acid that day and ended up missing the last bus back into the city no one ever thought that far ahead and a giant's stadium parking lot emptied at 1am with state troopers shining big flood lights on you to get going while you are coming down is the height of a bad trip....
Musically this was really fun but the dark star jam ended up just irking me because we were soooo close. Would have to wait for the Garden next year...

I managed to squirm my way as close as possible to the stage as humanly possible without actually being in the band. I saw the cameras taping the show for ABC's concert series from my slightly right of center vantage point. I remember watching the television to see the show again and to see if I was on camera. The ABC broadcast included the Saint of Circumstance and thats all I can remember. I do recall the mass rush toward the stage in the rain and the look of horror on the faces of front row ticket holders who could do nothing as their seats were now 10th row at least. That place was always a mad house to see a show.

my review of the show the night before mentioned horrible videos being shown on the screen during space. anyone remember it?

the mite as well smoked. anyone seen the documentary that was just released about the trip that mite as well is based on? a train trip across canada w/ the dead, janis, country joe, etc.? supposed to be bitchin'. wondering where to get it.

A Must Have!
I wasn't at the show.......
I can definately tell the band was energized by the crowd. Jerry's leads are tight. The band is all together tight.
Jerry's voice had a relaxed confident bluesy rasp to it. The backup vocals are awe inspiring. Not one bad song from beginning to end.
The transitions between songs are remarkable. This is definately one of those shows that shine and all planets were in alignment that evening.
The mix is great and all instruments complement each other well. Good stereo separation. Good ambiance. Crank it up and sit in the middle of two quality speakers and you might as well be as good as backstage.
July 7, 2004 Subject:
Not much more needs to be said about this show, but I can't resist. The show smokes from head to toe. Personal standouts are Eyes to open the show (we correctly viewed this as a very promising sign at the time), St of Circumstance and Speedway > UJB (and esp. the jam into drums).
Notably, this show (and the previous night) were featured on ABC's In Concert Series, so there are high quality videos lingering somewhere in the vault just itching to be released. Can't wait to see those come out someday!
Probably the best show I attended. There were massive thunderstorms right before the show. It absolutely poured. I remember people running around on the floor (or field) and sliding on the huge blue tarp they used to protect the grass like the whole place was a giant slip and slide. The energy was nuts. This was always a crazy place to see a show. Other people were jumping out of the stands to get to the floor and security was chasing them. It was quite a show. Everyone would wait until security was on the other side of the floor and then about fifty people would all go at once. Security would head to that side, and the other side would use the same strategy. Of course the audience loved it, cheering the crazy fans (Giants has about a ten foot wall and at the time an orange plastic fence that got trampled and torn down) each time another wave jumped. The the band came out. They stared tuning and when they played eyes everyone was just looking around with incredulous looks on their faces. The first set rocked, with huge ovations from the audience each time they teased dark star. The loose lucy was so rocking, Jerry had a big fan blowing right at him and his hair was blown back into a big mane. They would shine these white lights on him from behind during the chorus and he was swaying back and forth with this big white halo around his head and wearing a shiteating grin as he belted out "for a real good time" It was spine tingling. Then the might as well. whew.
Set two started right with tuning that melted right into space. The whole set is spaced out with a rare new speedway and the dark star/ other one space. I haven't heard this source, but David Gans played the whole show on the GD hour so I know great sounding copies exist. I'm giving it five stars because the show was so awesome and I know my tapes sounded good enough to get at least four stars. This is my favorite show of 91, but I must admit I'm biased by my memories. D/L it!

One for the ages...
Truly an impressive show - late era GD at it's best (no small thanks to Bruce for this).
From the Eyes opener to the Weight encore, the setlist is a work of art. The Dark Star theme colors the entire show. It's ironic that it's the most Dark Star-influenced show I've ever heard, but the song proper is never played; and that's a good thing it keeps the listener on edge and paying attention.
Not that they needed any gimmick this show. The whole thing rocks. From the Eyes, to the Loose Lucy, to Masterpiece to the crazy second set, there are some 'best ever' candidates here. (Def. the best Lucy I know of.)
But the obvious draw of this show is that it's like one big Dark Star w/o the verses. They jam on it, tease it, play the whole theme - it's all incredible. I think my favorite aspect is the way Bruce sneaks the familiar Dark Star riff into several of the songs - when's the last time you heard a DS tease in the middle of Masterpiece?
All in all, one of my favorite shows ever. A must have.

Great show. I really wouldn't call these Dark Star jams though. It is really Bruce who is driving the whole thing through the show. It's sad the the tuning before Eyes is cut because the band was on stage for a good 7-8 minutes noodling around before they started and Bruce was cutting in some Dark Star riffs even then until about a minute before they start my buddy gauruntees its Eyes. Still can't believe he called that one. The other reviews are spot on for this show though. Beautiful, electric night in Jersey. Along with 6/14, one of best I saw on 91 summer tour.

Vince is going nuts and Bruce compliments this by playing some very nice runs up and down the keys. Couple Other One teases too! You can definately tell the band was out to tear the place up on this night.
Only negative thing about this show is a couple spots of digi noise during the beginning of drums. It is rather loud and can take away from the experience if the stereo is cranked to begin with.
I'd give this show 4 stars due to the noise in drums but due to the energetic playing and great set list I'll give it 5! Definately a must have!

Dark Star teases!!
One of my favorite shows attended.... GREAT Eyes opener.... last time they even played a first set eyes was mid 70s!! Same goes for the Dark Star jam... I think it was in 74 for the last Dark star Jam. The quality is pretty darn good! I did notice the first few seconds of eyes are missing... but most of the copies of this show I have heard are all missing the begining ... also a very RARE Might as Well! If you don't have this... download it!!

One of the best shows of all time!
This is a "must have" for any collection. Not only is every song played very well, but the flow from song to song is seamless. Dark Star teases thru-out. Amazing Eyes opener. Jerry's vocals at his best.
